Did Rolling Stone get the 500 best right?

Did Rolling Stone get the 500 best rock songs of all time right?
What are your top five choices? Purely subjective. What ones blew your mind?

Here are mine.

1. Layla (not the crappy acoustic version) Clapton
2. Like a Hurricane (the guitar transcends) Neil Young
3. One U2
4. Crossfire Stevie Ray Vaughan
5. Breakdown Tom Petty

"Breakdown"? That isn't even remotely Tom Petty's best song.

Rolling Stone doesn't get anything right. What a ridiculous question.

I don't know what my top five rock songs are. Once you get to the upper tier, it's impossible to say what's better than what (which is why all of Rolling Stone's Top Whatever of All Time lists suck).

i was going to try and do a list, but it is too hard.

Not only placing which goes in which position, but actually deciding on five. I could never decide b/c i would worry i would come back later and realize i had left several off and whatnot

They focused waaaaaay too much on early rock and roll. Of course, some of the tunes are fantastic and deserve to be on the list. Others....eh.

I absolutely agree. These journalists are older and tend to focus on older music simply because it came first and therefore must be better. Sure, there are gleaming exceptions such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Stevie Wonder to name a few. But I saw some old one-hit-wonder R&B girl groups in there who have no place other than the fact that they were the first of their kind. (Not saying Destiny's Child or SWV deserve a place on the list instead.)

I really could go on and on here.

Yeah, being revolutionary is good, but being good is good too.
